    The thing I dont like about superbuytires.com is that they have a vehicle selector but I that it doesnt work right. It show i can get the same rims on an escalade that I could get on my truck.

    Yeah, but if they're both 40 series, then the 265 is taller than the 255 and will eventualy tear up your transfer case. I think I remeber that a 245/45ZR18 is the same height as a 275/40ZR18, if that helps? As for the speedo, you'll get more low end torque and effectively horse power to the wheels if you go with a smaller than stock tire height and get the speedo re-calibrated to match. Plus, if you want it low, a huge tire like a 255/55R18 will rub like hell. If you're gonna go that big and stay at stock ride height then get some dubs.

    C-town, thanks for the info and I'll have to think bout getting the speedo recalibrated since these are just my summer rims and back to the stock 4x4 rims for the winter. The 225/55/18 is closet to stock overall tire diameter according to the wheel calculater. You are right it is a tall tire and for now I think I might have to go with 255/45/18 all the way around to avoid ripping the transfer case apart and thanks for the info

    Corvette rims will fit a 4x4 blazer...the Z06 rims should fit also..I may be wrong, I have never seen them on a 4x4 blazer. But SLP puts the ss 10 spokes on the new adventure and they fit fine.

    gil91s-10 , since your rims are 18x9.5 with +50mm offset and have no rubbing do you think a 18x9.5 with +56mm offset will work? also they come with 275/35-18 tires, im just unsure about that +6mm difference

    Hey Decifer, I'm also wondering bout the extra +6mm thinking it will push the rim further outward and with wide tire it will probably rub not to mention sticking out further on the front. The back would be fine but mine stick bout 1/2" in front due to the longer axle but the back sit flush

    by the way +56 offset wont fit, on blazers the offset is 34/50, 34 is the lowest and 50 being the highest
